How do I get figure numbers to run in the same sequence as equation numbers, eg 1. The required numbering scheme can be confusing since figures written using the figure environment might float away from the point where you wrote them in the code see my example code below in which the numbers appear out of their natural order. If you want this scheme, using, for example.
Post by west. Numbering Figures by section. So if you're working in 3. I would like to be able to have the writer simply place a figure and it automatically see what section, subsection, subsubsection, etc. Then if I try to incorporate the subsection number, any figure landing in a section number will show up as 3. So it needs to somehow look at the correct counter. Are there any suggestions or fixes for this?

I want to generate the figure numbers depending on the sections, for example, if section number is 1. This will redefine the figure number to contain the section and subsection number.
Open an example of cross-referencing figures in Overleaf. In L a T e X , we can label entities that are numbered sections, formulas, etc , and then use that label to refer to them elsewhere, and the same commands apply to the figure environment as well they are numbered. The marker can be seen as a name that we give to the object that we want to reference.
